About Mete

Who am I?

I’m Mete Atamel, an INTJ, humanist, Cypriot and a developer advocate for Google Cloud Platform @ Google.

I’m originally from the beautiful island of Cyprus I lived in the United States for 10 years (4 years in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and 6 years in Boston, Massachusetts) and I currently live in Greenwich, London.

Why this blog?

In this blog, I intend to help developers take advantage of Google Cloud in their projects and also share my experiences as a software developer in different technologies & frameworks with the hopes of helping someone out there.

What do I do?

My programming language of choice is Java but recently I started liking C#/.NET as well. I’ve worked with Actionscript, C/C++, Javascript/HTML, Node.js, Perl, Scheme and more that I can’t remember right now throughout my career. I have done both client side and server side work, I try to be as technology agnostic as possible.

What did I do?

Before my current job as a cloud developer advocate at Google, I worked at Skype as part of a technology research and incubation group and later worked at Microsoft on a data analytics platform. Before Microsoft, I worked at Nokia, EMC and Adobe. At Adobe where I spent the most time (6.5 years), I worked on open-source BlazeDS and commercial Livecycle Data Services (LCDS) products. My main area of expertise was real-time communication for rich internet applications. I worked on a number features in BlazeDS and LCDS such as HTTP polling, long-polling, streaming, and more recently WebSocket channels to enable real-time connectivity between clients and servers. I also worked on Apache Jackrabbit, Adobe CRX and CQ products and became an Apache contributor to Jackrabbit project.

What did I study?

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Science and Mathematics (double majors) and Philosophy (minor) from Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. also have a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from Tufts University in Boston. My Master’s project was about using Machine Learning to filter spam emails.
